From the SPLOST vote to participation in yearly school events, our citizens pull together to do what is right for children. Through community support, two schools have been totally renovated, and the construction of the new Jeff Davis Middle School has now been completed. Jeff Davis County's parents attest to the strong bond that exists between our community and our school system. Business partnerships, parental involvement, and school-community interactions are at an all-time high, as we reach out to each other to provide the best education possible for students. Our community has high expectations for our school system. In turn, students are provided clean, safe schools that are accredited annually by both the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the Georgia Accrediting Commission.
Jeff Davis County is also the home of numerous award-winning band, athletic, vocational and other extra-curricular programs that complement our academic focus. Many student clubs and organizations are recognized at the regional, state, and national levels. These programs enjoy exceptionally high participation rates and provide students with lifelong skills that contribute to a well-balanced education.
